Division of Wildlife Spokesman Randy Hampton says the woman was awakened by a noise in the kitchen area at about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. When she went to investigate, the bear struck her in the face, injuring her with its claws.
Hampton says the bear entered through a sliding glass door that was closed but not locked.
